Saturday, July 19: Popsicles and Playgrounds!

I'm delighted to share that thanks to the generous support of Wash Cycle Laundry, a new bike-based laundry-delivery service in DC (!), you can purchase Pleasant Pops at a discounted price of just $2 each. They'll be accompanying us on the ride with one of the nifty electric cargo trikes (!!!) that that use to pick up and delivery laundry.

For our last ride of the summer, we’ll cool off with refreshing gourmet popsicles from Pleasant Pops and then head up to the Petworth Playground to enjoy their splash park. This ride will offer a great chance to practice biking on all kinds of different streets and infrastructure--bike lanes, sharrows, and calm neighborhood streets.

We’ll meet early at 10:00am to beat the heat at the Columbia Heights plaza, across from GALA Hispanic Theater. From there, we’ll bike to Pleasant Pops in Adams Morgan, where you can buy a popsicle to cool you off (and a sandwich to eat later, if you’re so inclined) before we leave for the next leg -- a trip up to the Petworth Recreation Center and Splash Park -- a personal favorite of the Odett household!


Sunday, July 6: POOL PARTY!

Have you been on a waiting list for a membership at the PG Pool for approximately 87 years? Are you tired of sending your kids out into the yard with a hose to get their fill of water sports? If so, then rejoice, for Kidical Mass DC has the perfect bike ride for you!

All-around awesome mom Elizabeth has scored us a coveted pool party spot at the PG Pool (just over the line in Prince George’s County) for Sunday, July 6. Though there is normally a fee for non-members to attend parties at PG Pool, thanks to the generosity of BicycleSPACE’s yoga program, we are able to offer this party FREE to all Kidical Mass riders.
